  • THE “POWER OF ONE” CAMPAIGN.

    Driven by the passion to give back to the community, Education for All Children (EFAC) scholars together with their mentors and friends officially launched the “Power of One” Campaign mountain climb – hiking for education in Ngong hills on Saturday August 29, 2015.

    The hike was officiated and flagged off by guest speaker the Governor of the County Government of Kajiado His Excellency Dr. David Ole Nkedienye, MP Kajiado North Hon. Joseph Manje, ANU Vice Chancellor Prof. Leah Marangu and the Deputy County Commissioner Kajiado North Sub-County Hon. Hiram Kahiro.

    The campaign sought to raise funds to facilitate the support and increment of sponsored student enrollment from across the Country into the EFAC program. The “Power of One” campaign was spearheaded by the current and previous EFAC scholars in collaboration with their mentors, friends and partners to climb Ngong hills in order to raise funds to accommodate more students into the EFAC program.

    ANU in partnership with EFAC runs a scholarship and mentorship program for the less advantaged secondary and post-secondary scholars in Kenya, to which ANU serves as Secretariat and holds the mandate of selecting students for scholarships and offers mentorship. Since 2008, over 280 students have benefited from the program, with 145 in high schools and 144 having successfully finished their secondary education. 95 of these students are currently pursuing higher education and 47 have been admitted to join tertiary institutions under the continued sponsorship of EFAC.

    We thank all those who participated towards this worthy cause.

    Truly, “What begins here, transforms the world.”
